Dwan Smith-Fortier, 70, has always felt the most comfortable being in front of an audience. Even as a small child, so small she had to stand on a box, she delivered Christmas recitations in church with a power and a voice beyond her years.
Grantmakers Partnership Project Webinar Series
Securing funding for creative aging programming can be an incredible challenge. The National Center for Creative Aging is hosting a first of its kind webinar series featuring Grantmaker affinity groups including: Grantmakers in the Arts, Grantmakers In Aging, and Grantmakers In Health along with a variety of foundations to showcase how opportunities for funding are opening up throughout arts, aging, and health sectors.
NCCA has worked with grantmakers across the country, thanks to generous support from the MetLife Foundation, to educate them on the importance of developing funding in arts and aging. In partnership with Grantmakers in the Arts, Grantmakers In Aging, Grantmakers In Health, and Global Alliance for Arts and Health, NCCA provided a national strategy session and a thought leader forum, two regional issue forums, webinars, and conference presentations to nearly 300 grantmakers. For the first time, we’re seeing substantial gains in the funding fields with the inclusion of support for creative aging.
This webinar series will not only showcase the findings from the 2010 through 2013 Grantmaker Partnership Project, but will also give you the tools you need to learn how to develop partnerships and work with both traditional and nontraditional funders. The directors of each grantmaker affinity group along with a member foundation will speak about how to write a successful proposal, what they are looking for in terms of a successful project or program, and where funding is headed in the areas of arts, aging and health.
Each session will be moderated by Margery Pabst, President, Pabst Charitable Foundation of the Arts and a visionary in funding creative aging programming across sectors.
